Turkey on Monday condemned Israeli government's latest move to expand settlement in the occupied east Jerusalem neighborhood of Har Homa.
"At a time when the international community is mainly focused on developments in Syria, Israel's insistence on continuing with new settlements that defy the international law constitutes a grave mistake which undermines efforts to revive the peace process and a vision for a two-state solution," the Turkish Foreign Ministry said in a statement in response to a new tender launched by the Israeli Housing Ministry for the construction of 130 more housing units.
The statement urged Israel to "fulfill its obligations from the international law and halt all activity that hurts grounds for peace," saying that the international community should raise a voice against Israel's settlement policies.
World court ruled Israeli settlements on the occupied Palestinian territories illegal in a move that international community condemns and does not recognize.
